More books

I'm working on another fabric/paper journal, this was going on my etsy but has been reserved by a lovely visitor to my blog. I'm also making some altered books to teach in a workshop from home. The kitchen's still progressing nicely. The stone benches go in this Saturday. I'll have photos soon.


A completed page in my sample altered book. I painted the vase and candle stick.


This is a smaller book. I painted the lady, her dress is made using papers inspired by Anne Bagby.


This is a page in progress.


My new journal in progress.

Hi! Ro,

Beautiful work! Just found you!
How do you get such vivid colors on your pages? I have tried all sorts of techniques, but they ever come out bright enough!
Best,
Nancy
